How Votes are Bought.
And now. how are they bought ? I have
shown how thoroughly each district is organ
ized , how carefully each vote is watched , and
some few of the many plans adopted to
weaken the enemy. In many cases , voters
who can be bought beforehand are kept in
custody for a day or two before election , then
taken to the polls , and voted. In one case , in
Indiana , a man kept a half-idiot who was
working for him shut up in his cellar for some
days before an election , to prevent the opjlos-
ing party from capturing and treating him in
same way. Then , on election morning , with a
man on each side to guard him , he was
marched to the polls with a prepared ticket in
his hands , and voted.
In 1888 , in another county of same state ,
six"floaters" were kept under guard in an up
stairs office over night , the next morning taken
down , marched to the polls under guard ,
voted , brought back to the office , and $96 paid
totheir leaders $16 apiece. How the money
was divided among them only their leader
knew. The owner of the office is an intelli
gent , honest , patriotic , Christian citizen , who
detests the whole system , but who says he can
not sit still and see the enemy win by such
methods. lie favors any law that will stop
the custom in both parties , even though it
should be to the disadvantage of his own.

Shiloh's Consumption Cure.
This is beyond question the most successful
cough medicine we have ever sold , a few
doses invariable cure the worst cases of cough ,
croup and bronchitis , while its wonderful suc
cess in the cure of consumption is without a

irst discovery it has been sold on a guarantee ,
a test which no other medicine can stand. If
rou have a cough we earnestly ask you to try

It has been said was it a Frenchman who
said it ? that the Germans cannot write snort
stories. This assertion is disproved by the
mlliant October number of Romance. Itis _
he second in that magazine's series of special
ssues , and more than'half of its contents are
rom the German. Even the French sel
dom produce stories equal to Hugo Klein's
'His Excellency , the Fool , " Paul ileyse's
'The Beginning and the End , " the Queen of
oumania's "Tragedy of Love , " and Hans
von Spielberg's "Tale of Great Saraha. " No
such collection would be complete withou a
airy-story , and an amusing one , new to
American readers , is supplied in "The
Donkey's Spring , " by Rudolph Baumbach.
There are also classic German stories by Jean
* aul Richter and Ludwig Tieck. The whole
prms a remarkable and interesting illustra-
ion of Geiman fiction. Agreeable variety is
ecured by the interspersing of half-a-dozen
American tales , flavoring strongly of the
lative soil. This magazine is issued by

Wisdom's Violet Cream
s the most exquisite preparation in the
vorld for softening and whitening the hands
and face. Nothing enters the composition of
his deljghtful toilet article which could
> rove injurious to the most delicate skin. It
s not only a substitute for , but in every
espect superior to glycerine , cold cream ,
'aseline and like other preparations. Being
neither sticky or greasy , kid gloves may be
vorn immediately after applying it. For
gentlemen's use after shaving it stand with
out an equal.
It acts by improving the softness , clearness
and healthy tone of the skin , and its daily
application tends to preserve it from the
action of drying winds , vivid sunshine and
xtreme temperature. Try it.
The colder climate does not seem to be con
ducive to the good health of the "very young"
hildren. One child in every five in the north-
rn half of the United State dies before it has

i'an to be circulated , and not long'after
tie opening of the territory they
I/ranched out as full fledged train rob
bers , and have since then , by close at

tion second only to that of

Mrs. Samuelsand although "the boys"
were known to often visit her ou the
claim no one was ever able to get any
information from her that would lead
to their capture or to ever find out
when they were on the farm.
The "boys" drew other roush riders
about them and it .soon become the
Dalton "gang. " The men were all
well acquainted with the country
they operated in , and had many
friends among both whites and
Iuliins , and although the country
has been scoured for them time aud
again , no one was ever able to Qnd the
bold robbers. Every train robbery ,
bank robbery or almost any kind of
robbery that has happened in the
Southwest during the last two or three
years has been attributed to the Dal
ton "gang. " The gang has not been
responsible for them all , however , but
has a long series of successful exploits
to its credit.
The Dalton boys have been robbing
trains for a couple of years , or at least
it is now supposed that train robberies
which occurred Uyo years ago were
committed by them. Of late they had
become bolder than ever. It was a
paying business for them , as alto
gether they secured about S'100,000.
They have beeru much wanted by
officials since they began their thiev
ing operations. The express com
panies had offered 55,000 each for the
arrest and conviction of the members"
of the gang. There are rewards for

The Daitons then forced the
three out of the front door
and followed right after them.
CIti/cns and Outlaws JJattlc.
The alarm in the meantime had
been given and as the outlaws ap
peared CJeorge Cubine , a merchant , and
Express Agent Cox shot at one of
them , badly wounding him. The out
laws returned the fire , killing Cubine.
The robbers in Condon Co.'s bank
shot out of the window , hitting Ayers
and Brown. Both robbers ran back
through the bank when they were
met by Baldwin and fatally wounded
The citixens being thoroughly arous
ed by this time , were after them hot
and heavy and after a fight in which
City Marshal Connelly was killed suc
ceeded in killing the four desperadoes
named and mortally wounded
Emmet. He will die before morn
ing , if not in one way then another.
Jim Spears , a livery stable keeper ,
with his Winchester rifle , killed three
of the outlaws in as many seconds.
This created such a diversion that
other citizens were enabled to get
close enough to kill another of the
The two remaining robbers dropped
their plunder and mounted their
horses , but a posse was quickly in pur
suit and one more of the bandit gang-
fell from his horse mortally wounded
about two miles from town. The sixth
and last was still being pursued at
latest accounts. The man who getaway
away is supposed to be Allie Ogee.
This is the old home of the Daitons
and it is peculiarly appropriate that
the world should be rid of the gang-
here. Great excitement prevails and
if the other man is found he will be
summarily dealt with.
The large rewards for the capture of
the outlaws dead or alive will , if the
citizens' wishes are respected , go to
the families of the murdered citizens.
All of the money was recovered to a
cent and turned over to the banks.
Emmet Dalton Confesses.
Emmet Dalton has made a partial
confession that his gang was the same
that robbed the Pacific express car on
the Missouri , Kansas and Texas rail
road at Adair station in the Indjaii
territory last July and committed
other daring robberies.
The news was telegraphed to Par
sons shortly after 10 o'clock , and Gen
eral Superintendent Frey of the Mis
souri , Kansas and Texas railroad , with
his special car , in which were thirty or
forty trusty citizens with Winchesters
and shotgun , came to Coffeyville to
assist in running the desperadoes to
bay. They found on their arrival that
there was but little work for them to
do , as the plucky inhabitants at
Coffeyville had wound up the careers
of the desperadoes.

The Dalton boys went to Indian
territory from \Vestern Kansas , where
they had been mixed up in several
county seat fights and numerous little
difficulties of their own. They are

Bob Dalton , the eldest brother , was
for a time deputy sheriff in one of the
Western border counties , and was the
only one of the brothers who had any
reputation as a bad man before the
family removed to Oklahoma.
Before the opening of Oklahoma
Bob Dalton went to the territory and
obtained a position as United States
deputy marshalHe served in that
capacity during the first big rush into
Oklahoma. Many of the settlers of
Oklahoma will remember Bob as he
appeared the day before the opening.
He rode into the big camp , of the
boomers at Turkey Creek , having-
come across the country from
the south. There was half a dozen
deputy marshals in camp before he
got there , but they were not making-
any parade of their authority. As
